This term we will be sharing a digital version of Dear Polar Bear. Through this delightful story about friendship and sharing we will practise reading letters written by Polar Bear, Koala, Sun Bear, Panda, Brown Bear and Spectacled Bear. We will write whole sentences giving fun facts about these different bears and finally write our own postcard. After that we will be looking at the exceptionally good Meerkat Mail by Emily Gravett.


Remember when we write we always...

  • begin our sentences with a capital letter
  • finish with a full stop
  • write on the lines
  • leave gaps between our words
  • use curly cursive school handwriting
  • reread to make sure our writing makes sense


In Guided Reading, we will share Hibernation Hotel, Dogs don't do Ballet and Spyder. What a treat! We will use these to further develop our VIPERS reading skills.
